Summer's Bounty!

Bohemia Ecological Preserve
Hike leader: Joani, Bohemia Ecological Preserve Docent

Join Docent Joani  for a visit to the Bohemia Ecological Preserve to celebrate SUMMER BOUNTY 2017!

We’ll do an exploration of the THREE B’S (Birds/Butterflies/other Bugs) , and what’s in bloom and who’s pollinating  right now… and who is saying what and to whom!


We’ll be moving at a leisurely pace around various parts of the Preserve to gaze in wonder at the creatures and plant life in this beautiful place.   We will be hiking 2-4 miles up and down hills  while taking our time to listen to, talk about, and observe bird, pollinator and plant life.

Note on timing:

We will do our best to get back to our vehicles by 12:00pm. However, it is possible we will get back later than intended.  If you have plans directly after this hike that you cannot miss this may not be the outing for you.  Early departures cannot be accommodated.  Thank you for your understanding!

Hike Details: From the Preserve entrance, we'll need a few people to volunteer the use of their vehicles (high clearance) to drive us up to Hut Hill where the hike will begin. Please come prepared for a hike over moderate terrain with some steep sections, about 2-4 miles. 

When and Where: We will meet at 9:00 am at the Bohemia Ecological Preserve, 6773 Bohemian Highway, just past Westminster Woods. From the intersection of Graton Road and Bohemian Highway in Occidental, travel approximately 3 miles north on Bohemian Highway. The Preserve is on the right-hand side (if you are coming from Occidental) & looks like a quarry. Watch for staff or volunteers located at Bohemian Highway to direct you to parking!  

What to bring: Binoculars and/or spotting scopes, WATER (enough for 4 hours), lunch, a camera, something to sit on, a hat, sunscreen, and bug repellent. Some of the trails are narrow, rocky and may be muddy as well. Bring hiking poles if you have them. Bring a high clearance vehicle if possible so we can carpool up to Hut Hill.

  • You will be asked to sign a liability waiver.
